Commonwealth Senior Living at Hillsville is serenely nestled in a scenic rural setting where our residents can have peace of mind that goes along with dignified, respectful help with daily activities like getting dressed, safely taking medications, or enjoying a delicious meal. Each day, our community enjoys a variety of award-winning programs, exceptional dining, and gracious amenities. There is always something to do at this vibrant community and people to share those experiences with. Today we would like to take you through a few examples of our residents’ favorite parts of the day.
During the week, we typically start our days off with morning Bingo following our strength, balance, or flexibility exercises. We then enjoy an activity like eating popcorn while playing pop trivia or trying fun new recipes from our Dining Services Director like “Backyard Bug Snacks.” We enjoy regular happy hours, engaging programming coordinating with our monthly Travel the World theme, and marvel over watching our farm-to-table greens grow in our Babylon Micro Farm. However, we enjoy being able to harvest those vegetables to make salad appetizers for our community even more! No matter the topic, our residents always have a say in making their experiences meaningful, meeting for their Resident Council and Food Council each month. See what else is coming up this month here.
Our weekends are just as exciting as our weekdays in our community. We love taking shopping trips to Big Lots, going on Sunday strolls around the community, visiting ice cream trucks, singing along to our favorite gospel songs, or getting a bite to eat at our local Pizza Hut. The possibilities are endless.
In addition to these local activities, Hillsville Health and Rehabilitation Center, Carilion Clinic Outpatient Therapy, and Twin County Regional Healthcare are also in the area for any assistance our residents need outside our community.
